We hope you are keeping well during these unprecedented times.
You may have seen our recent social media posts about Cyclone Harold and how it affected Fiji. We were devastated to hear about families with no food after this disaster and we put a call out for donations – I am so pleased to let you know that we raised enough money to help five families buy staples and seeds to replant their gardens.
These families mainly live off the food they grow, so this is a huge achievement. Thank you to those who supported them!
You may also be wondering how the Covid-19 situation is playing out in Fiji – unfortunately after declaring a State of Natural Disaster after Cyclone Harold, a few days later the Prime Minister declared a second State of Natural Disaster in relation to Covid-19. In the most ambitious public health screening campaign in the country’s history, around 300,000 people have already been screened for the disease. Schools and universities are still closed as they attempt to flatten the curve.
We are still supporting girls at both school and university, and our work with continue long after this crisis has passed, so as always we appreciate your assistance.
Thank you once again for your support!
